St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established.

In 1831, the council gave notice of a public meeting to establish an Episcopal Church and a committee was appointed.

HISTORY

St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established.  The first rector was the Reverend Sanson K. Brunot, who arrived December 23, 1832. The first of four churches on this site was completed in 1839.  A  rectory was erected in 1857 and is still standing. Learn more about our history and plans to renovate the Historic Rectory.
